The 21st Century U.S. Workforce is changing. For the first time the history of the workforce, we have five generations in the workforce. The date range of the multi-generational workforce vary and for this discussion, we will use the date ranges assigned by the Center for Generational Kinetics: • Traditionalist or Silent Generation (born before 1945) • Baby Boomers (born 1946 through 1964) • Generation X (born 1965 through 1976) • Generation Y or Millennial (born 1977 to 1995) • Generation Z or iGen (born 1996 to ???? ) (now entering the workforce) Research academic data on this subject and include the following questions in your response: • Summarize some of the traits of the generations • In school or work, how has the multi-generation mix affected you? • What do you feel are the advantages or disadvantages to a multi-generational workplace and why?
